A few weeks ago, you may have come across this snippet in a Kos diary by bajadudes about Chris 'Chameleon' Mintz running for office in Raleigh as a Democrat.

And it's where the term Bunkeycrat comes from. It specifically refers to Bunky Morgan and that whole sad saga. Bunkey a rich Republican carwash owner ran as a Dem for a Chatham County Board of Commissioners seat held by actual Democrat and Commissioners Chair Gary Phillips. Bob Geary from the Independent put it best this way...."Bunkey thus knocked Phillips out of office and paved the way (I think that's the right term) for the developers to take control in Chatham."


CQPolitics.com - NC 8: Dunn’s Drop Out Brightens Prospects for Hayes

But Dunn’s dropout was even better news for Hayes, whose chances for winning a fifth term in the potentially competitive 8th District greatly improved. With Kissell still unproven as a candidate and lacking the publicity draw of Dunn’s service in Iraq, CQPolitics.com has changed its rating on the race to Republican Favored from Leans Republican.

And here we thought Hayes would just roll over and play dead.

Forrest Gilliam, from Madison County, is 3rd vice chair of the 11th District.

Where's Your Buddy Abramoff Now, Congressman Taylor?

{first published at Scrutiny Hooligans}

Heath Shuler is dominating the fundraising in his race against the tainted Taylor. I heard the news last night, and Real Values (via the hub of citizen journalism on North Carolina politics, BlueNC) has the numbers up today. No link, sorry. I'm posting this in a hurry, and you can go see the FEC documents for yourself.

Oh, Sweetness Itself!

Real Values: Shuler CRUSHING Taylor in Fundraising:

According to just released FEC information, Heath Shuler is absolutely crushing morally bankrupt Charles Taylor in fundraising (Taylor is still probably waiting on those Russian mob checks or Indian gaming checks to clear).

You'll have to click on over for the numbers. It's worth it!
